i am 13. i started having panic attacks in 3rd grade. i had agoraphobia last year in 6th and toward the end of 4th quarter i became depressed and i started having panic attacks more frequently. ive just found out i have 'panic disorder - all possible symptoms' and 'severe depression'. ive been misdiagnosed with a few things in the past but this time my doctor is sure hes not mistaken. My mother wants me to be prescribed Xanax XR as she is. i was wondering if this could be done for a teenager; because i have been told xanax should not be given to anyone under 18. then again ive heard of people as young as 10 taking it. "I also take budeprion twice daily."
